March 2020 – May 2021
INDUSTRY INVESTMENT: $0.7M | NSRP INVESTMENT $0.7M
The objective of this project is to enable Navy advanced data collaboration through the configuration management of content & format that conforms to defined standards and specifications. The project will work to establish a Shipbuilding Industry and Navy wide generic process for data collaboration through alignment with Navy “Model Based Product Support” (MBPS) requirements. It will also address Original Equipment Operators (OEM’s) and Vendor data exchange format and standards. Standard will provide; ease of understanding each other, and clarity of requirements with no ambiguity.
This project will be focused on collaboratively defining an efficient standard-based data exchange framework for Shipbuilders and the Navy. This will be accomplished through evaluation of: value and limitation of current data exchange methods, minimizations of data manipulation, data integrity and quality, part effectivity, emerging technologies & automation, data governance policies, data model categorization & relationships, minimum viable information to support an operation digital twin, forward leading requirements, and the potential need for hybrid combinations or grouping of linked specifications to meet customer needs.
KEY DELIVERABLES / BENEFITS
The team estimates the following benefits:
- Estimated savings of $36M
- Estimated ROI of 13.8
- Establishes common standards/requirements for use in future contracts to successfully procure technical data for use in a modern PLM environment
